1. Expensive Energy Bills

Choosing to Replace your windows with new energy-efficient profiles such as our range of double glazing windows will mean that you can enjoy cheaper bills and a lower carbon footprint for your property.
2. Poor Operation
The longer the lifespan of your windows is, the more likely they are to have become worn and therefore more difficult to operate. When this happens, it can not only be dangerous but also is a sure sign that it’s time for a window replacement. If your windows are now difficult to open and close, or perhaps are not locking correctly, this leaves your home open to unwanted visitors. To ensure the security and performance of your Surrey home is up to standard, it might be time to think about a window replacement upgrade.
3. Foggy Windows
Foggy glass within your windows not only looks unattractive, but it also is a sure sign that there is water condensing within the double or triple glazing units. When the seals of your windows have failed, moisture is drawn between the panes. Eventually as the moisture increases, calcium is deposited on the inside of the window and etches into the glass. As this build-up increases, it makes the windows look foggy or milky. Depending on the severity of this, it could be time to consider new windows for your home.
4. Cracked, Broken or Rotten
These are all more obvious problems that homeowners will notice concerning the windows to their homes. If your windows are visibly damaged, there is not much choice but to have the problem repaired or your windows replaced as a broken or cracked window can be very dangerous. If you are experiencing warped or rotting window profiles, choosing to replace your windows is often preferable to attempting to repair them as you will often develop further problems.
